After winning the second event of the year, former Louisville Cardinal Adam Hadwin put the PGA Web.Com Tour on notice that the Year of the Cardinal would continue. The Web.Com Tour is sort of like the minor leagues for the PGA Tour. A graduate of the UofL Business School in 2009, Hadwin won the Chile Classic, played annually at Prince of Whales Country Club in Santiago, Chile on March 9th. The victory netted him a cool $117,000. He currently sits 4th in the Web.Com Tour with a total of $173,289. If he can continue his strong performance, we could be watching him compete against the big dogs sooner than later.
His former teammate, Derek Fathauer, is climbing the leader boards as well. A 2008 Graduate of the University of Louisville in Sports Administration, his average round is under 70 at 69.88 on the Web.Com Tour. Of his 6 made cuts, he has 3 top ten finishes. He currently sits at 13th on the Web.Com Tour money list, with current a total of $83,580, which is already more than double his total earnings from last year, and we are only 8 events in this year.
These guys are good. It's a fine thing that CARDS fans can just turn on the golf channel and see CARDS logos on the screen. Great work and best of luck, Adam and Derek. Go CARDS!
